'Made in Japan' goods to make US blitz through Amazon

Tea, ceramics and digital device makers team up with Tokio Marine

Customers watch a knife-sharpening demonstration at a Tokyo specialty shop. Knives are among the many Japanese products popular overseas.

TOKYO -- Tokio Marine & Nichido Fire Insurance will work with Japanese regional banks to offer a one-stop service for smaller businesses hoping to sell their "made in Japan" products in the U.S. through Amazon.com.

Japanese goods popular abroad include green tea, sake, small digital devices, and such everyday items as ceramics and kitchen knives. Small and midsize businesses excel at handling such products manufactured in low quantities but have not been able to fully tap overseas demand.
